Heh, I was pictured on DrunkRockers.com, I am all proud of myself, not the best picture of me I will say, but hardly the worst. Alas, this was after getting thrown out of Skinny Puppy, and I do not have my goggles on but all and all, a decent pic.

So, it has been a little bit since my last post, I have not been up to much, mostly working, lots of working. As I surmised, much of the seasonal help we hired have either quit or got fired, sigh, kids these days, why, in my day, kids were responsible, polite, and punctual...no, I am lying, kids have never been any of those things, least of all teenagers. I am all for raising the minimum hiring age at Hot Topic to 18 instead of 16, perhaps we would not have nearly the problems we do now. I miss last year when I met several of my good friends during our holiday seasonals, like Mr. Turbo and Mr. Shia, they are still close friends over a year later, huzzah. Today was my third day in a row working, I actually work five days in a row, than a day off, I only have two days off this week, yes, not that I terribly mind the hours, more money for me, yea, to pay for gifts and cosplays, and other such wonderful things! I bought a new purse/bag today, an olive drab messanger bag with a medical red and white cross symbol on it, I plan to purchase many industrial/gothic patches to place on it, ah, if only I could sew, I suppose I will have to contend with merely safety pinning it on. You know, I just might be able to sew, to be perfectly honest, I have never worked on a machine before and have not sewn a thing since I was in grade school, yes, that long, I am one of those types that if they do not succeed at something immediately, they usually never attempt it again! Sigh, I get discouraged easily, that seed of self doubt begins to creep in and I crawl back into my protective cocoon to shield myself from failure.
I have been trying to limit the amount of new clothing I buy, I bought a new skirt and top from HotTopic.com, both pieces by Illig, the military sweater top is very cute but the skirt I am not terribly fond of, I wore it today but it sits too high, I prefer skirts to sit on my hips, ah well, I hate it when clothing in the same brand do not fit the same, cough*Lip Service*cough. It will probably just join the rest of the stuff that I never wear, along with several of it's Illig kin, other long skirts that I do not find the occasion to wear, looks like another rash of Ebay auctions.
Once again, I am obsessing over my weight, I want to lose 10lbs, or at least five, so I am planning on joining a fitness club while the rates are so low due to the holidays and everyone else worrying about a few extra inches. I only get chided at for mentioning this, but I do not see anything particularly wrong with wanting to better myself, heh, I still eat, just not as much and I watch what I eat more than ever now, it has helped, I look better now than I have for most of my adolescant/adult life. I am just thankful I get paid this week so I can purchase gifts and be done with it, this will be my last check of the month, I had best make it last, hopefully, in conjunction with the auctions I hope to post within the next week or so, I will have plenty of money to pay for everything. And in closing, I am quite pleased about Luciferette finishing my Myoubi cosplay, I cannot wait to see it tomorrow! ^_^
